I want to be more active in my community

Are there any moms out there that can help me out with finding great places to volunteer / help give back to the community. I work full time 1st shift and in the afternoons I am home with my children. I love being a mom, but since im not currently in school, i feel like im not doing anything else positive with my spare time. I would love any ideas, or if someone is a volunteer could they tell me how to join.

call a church.  Google volunteer opportunities for your county/Parrish.  And you can call your local senior center too.

if you knit or crochet, you can do little blankets, or beanies for the kids at the hospital.... my sister lives in a really bad homeless city and she makes/carries at least 3 a day of hats and gloves for those who are homeless- especially now that its gotten colder.

craigslist has a volunteer area too. some are stupid, others seem really nice!

a few years ago, i sent out cards to random people. it was silly things like "you're doing a great job! enjoy your life! always keep your head up! your worth more than you know"... things like that. i have no idea how the recievers took it, but i'd hope that it brought a smile to their faces.
